D.O.B. 8/6/1981  

Occupation: Student  

Married/ NO!

Children? NO!

Hobbies: A love of all sports, still play touch and cricket very socially. Play drums in a church band.  

Referee History: Began refereeing a friend’s team at the start of 2003. Half way through that year I sat the introduction referee course and proceeded on to referee at local level. Have been to National academes in Napier (end of 2004 and 2005); to further enhance my refereeing skills. 2004-05 appointed to National Youth league as an assistant referee. 2005-06 appointed to N.Z.F.C as assistant referee.

 

 

 

Why you became a referee: I became a referee as my mates team had to referee a half each and the players didn’t really want to do it. They let me have a go and actually found I enjoyed being involved again. After a while someone said I should take it more “seriously” so I did.

 

 

Anything Else you want to add. I want to specialize as an assistant referee because I feel this involves slightly more “mental capacity” than refereeing therefore better suiting my genetic make-up. In addition I also like the “lining” component of a game compared to the refereeing part.

My ultimate goal would be to one day gain a call up onto F.I.F.A’s international list.
